2008 Access Statistics

Late December, 2007, I set up an access log function. And then forgot about it. It is now 5.5 million lines long and more than 500 megabytes. I have to delete it. But not before parsing it to find out what people were reading last year. Note that this list under-reports hits on posts, because most reads from OLDaily are directly to the article in question, and not via the website.
